Lo Lai Lai Natalie, ‘Deliberately Flow’
Lo Lai Lai Natalie, ‘Deliberately Flow’

The movements of farming appear like a natural daily dance but also reflect the futility of life.

Lo Lai Lai Natalie

Are we acting with intention or letting nature take its course? We exist with nature after thousands of years. Under the light that shines through the rice stems and leaves, we are able to restrain our beastly instincts. Is this the result of self-awareness or is it a coincidence or destiny?
